i love how there is no comments on this everyone just gets the reference

No. No, I don’t get the reference. 300 thousand people have reblogged this without a word, without so much as a tag, because apparently we all get the reference. I fucking don’t. This has passed by my dashboard hundreds of fucking times and nobody ever asks what the fuck it is.
I’m officially terming this post a conspiracy. 300000 people could not just know what this is. You’re all reblogging this to fit in, or because you know it messes with people, or because you’re the fucking Matrix. You’re the Matrix, aren’t you? You’re all a bunch of Mr Smiths living in a world of green code. Well fuck you all and fuck your stupid post. I’m off to save fucking Zion.
Fuck this.

Dude it’s from spongebob

Photographer Reveals the Lonely Side of Superheroes

Photographer Benoit Lapray’s photo series, “The Quest for Absolute" focuses on the loneliness of famous superheroes, set in the beautiful, yet desolate landscape of the French Alps.

Yesterday a man came into my work, all scruffy and dirty with a big backpack on his shoulders, and as he was leaving I told him to stay dry because it’s been raining almost none stop for a few days. 
He stopped and turned around and laughed, and then he showed me his new shoes that he just bought and said “I’ve been walking the perimeter of the United States; these shoes will last me another month, rain or sunshine.”
We talked for a bit and he told me about how he’s walking around the perimeter of the entire U.S. to raise awareness and money for the homeless. He told me about some things he’s seen and the places he’s been so far. Before he left, he gave me a big smile, said “God be with you,” and walked out the door with the happiest strut I’ve ever seen. 
He started off in Virginia and made it all the way down here to Florida on foot, and he’s still got a long way to go. He was very kind and very optimistic. 
I’ve never met someone like him before, so I want to try and spread him and his effort here on tumblr. 
He isn’t very popular yet, but I really want to try to spread his word and raise awareness of the homelessness issue here in the U.S., and try to help him raise money for this cause. 
His name is Leroy Bailey and if you want to follow him around the U.S. his facebook is here. 
I didn’t get a photo of him so I took this one from his facebook

Well, that pretty much says everything, doesn’t it?

Excuse me while I go do some painful things to the programmers because I Am Not Amused.

Oh, wait. It gets worse. 
This is from the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Here’s how they describe “Science with a Sparkle”:
Science With a Sparkle
Oct. 111 – 4 pmAges – 8-12
Prepare to be dazzled! Dive into chemistry and learn how science relates to health and beauty products. Become a cosmetic chemist and concoct your own creations to take home.
Also, it’s described as:
No Boys Allowed! – Girls Only Workshops
Because God forbid that boys learn how to do something so icky, right?
The Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Webelos programs are not designated “boys only”—but the people who set up the programs consistently describe the participants as being boys, cub scouts, etc. There is no indication that a girl would be welcome to join in.
If you are as bugged by this artificial gender role reinforcement as I am (which seems to be about what people believe that boys and girls should be interested in), have some more links:
The Senior Staff Directory
Staff Directory (this is all phone numbers for different departments, not contacts for individual people)
Contact the Carnegie Science Center Online

I was given some incredible experiences in my time with Boy Scouts; I value that time a lot, it gave me access to many opportunities and honestly is still empowering me today (Eagle Scout is a recognizable and, by many employers, highly respected award to list on a résumé). My troop was, luckily, also fairly inclusive (relative to the national council, particularly; we had a few openly-gay troop members, and this was years before the ruling allowing such members). It bugged me at the time that girls in my peer group had disappointing-at-best opportunities that lacked any sort of parity with my own. Girl Scouts is a pretty cool organization in its own ways (and honestly, from what I’ve seen, a *significantly* cooler institution at the national level), but the content of the experiences does very much stem from those gendered expectations.
Looking back through the lens of how much I valued my own experiences, it actually really pisses me off that people don’t have the same/similar opportunities, just because of… well, *any* of the reasons people are denied such entry. Venture Scouts is a very, very cool program itself, but none of the other scouting organizations have the clout or resources that the BSA puts towards their primary program. I don’t think most people regard the Gold Award with the same prestige as the Eagle rank (forgive me if that’s the wrong equivalency; I myself don’t actually know the GS ranks that well), which, like… just, ugh. I don’t even know how to express myself, it’s just fuckin’ frustrating.
